This huge vaulted courtyard in the Cibeles Palace (Madrid City Hall) hosts a variety of public and private events. In the summer, it even screens movies. Previously, it was part of the Buen Retiro Palace and then it was converted to a recreational garden as well. In the twentieth century, with the annexation to the Communications Palace, it became an essential element of the new City Hall and a pedestrian street open to the public during the daytime.
The 2,400m2 gallery boasts a magnificent glass-domed roof made of more than 2,000 triangle-shaped pieces forming a mesh structure. Since it is intended to be a place where visitors feel at home, it has underfloor heating and air conditioning.
The Glass Gallery has played host to a number of very different events, including as the Pop UP Film season and the Swing Night which saw the place transformed into an original dance floor.
